Curtain up, light the lights! on Cawston Players’ “Barely Heirs”

Players’ ready to present “Barely Heirs”

Tickets are going fast for The Cawston Players Spring production of Barely Heirs, an adult comedy, onstage at The Cawston Community Hall this coming Friday Saturday and Sunday, April 12, 13 and 14.

Directed by Bob McAtamney,  this outrageous piece of comic farce brings the audience a fun filled evening of laughs,  chaos, and confusion as the main character, Jane, played by Amanda Elyzen, desperately to find a way to take delivery of her inheritance meeting the one requirement – that she be wed, which she isn’t.  For this she needs to “borrow”her best friend’s husband, Tom, played by Coretin Caro-Chambard.

Complications ensue with a slippery lawyer, played by Eben McKiblin, Tom’s real wife, Claire, played by Jenna Sipponen,  who joins the charade disguised as second stand-in husband.  Add Jane’s ex-boyfriend, Paul, played by Guy Sasseville who is moving back in today and another surprise visitor, Jane’s mother, Betty, played by Gabriele Villecourt.

Enter Officer Hanes, played by Taina Sipponen,  at the door to investigate all of these neighbourhood shenanigans.

Refreshments will be on hand from the hall kitchen all evening.  “Good Food, Savory and Sweet”   is prepared and served by Renate Winter with hot and cold beverages by donation.

There will be pre-curtain and intermission keyboard renderings by Destin Lydiatt.

Theatre patrons can enjoy a local vintage from the wine bar.

Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening with doors open at 7 p.m.  Sunday matinee is at 2 p.m. with doors open at 1:30.

Tickets are at Similkameen Agencies and Cawston Marketplace.  Out of towners can call 250-499-7217 for tickets.
